Morning: Since I do most of my skincare routine at night and I am usually rushing in the morning, I like to keep it simple. I just clean off my face with a makeup wipe, and apply the same moisturizer as the night before. I don’t use any moisturizer with SPF in it on a daily basis because my foundation has it included. If I were spending the day outdoors or not wearing makeup, then I will use SPF on my face.
Night: I use whatever makeup wipes I am using at the moment to remove most of my makeup. I am partial to theSimple brand and Burt’s Bees, but I will say that any generic brand works just as good too. Then I will use my Aveeno cleanser to clean everything else off, apply my Simple toner with a cotton round (I swear by this stuff), and then I typically use an under eye cream, and my daily moisturizer and go to bed.
Foundation: I have fallen in love with Loreal’s True Match Lumi foundation. If you have dry skin like I do, then I think you will love this. I always apply my foundation with my Beauty Blender or my Real Techniques Sponge.
Eye shadow: Lately I have been using my Lorac Pro Pallette 2 non-stop. I just use the most neutral shades with a bit of shimmer on the lid.
Concealer: Maybeline FIT Me concealer. $5.00 and the best concealer ever. I use it under my eyes in an upside down triangle shape, on the bridge of my nose, my chin, and middle of my forehead. You will not look all cake like with this concealer and if you use it with a damp sponge you will be amazed.
Powder/Blush/Bronzer: After my concealer I apply my powder which is also like $4.00 from Rimmel. I use it everywhere I applied my concealer. I then use blush on the apples of my cheek. Hervana from Benefit is my all time favorite because I already have rosy cheeks, and this is the perfect light blush. Bronzer is my life, I would look like a pale ghost without it. My top two favorites are Hula from Benefit which is around $28.00 and the other is from Wet N’ Wild and is literally like $3.00 I will admit that they are almost the same exact quality as well.
Eyeliner/Mascara: After my face, I finish with eyes. I truly think that the best eyeliner comes from the drugstore and costs $3.00 Wet and Wild guys, some of their products are awesome. I just line my top lash line halfway and usually apply a nude liner to my bottom water line. Mascara is my number one makeup product that I use every single day. Lately I use both They’re Real by Benefit and Maybelline’s Lash Sensational. Both are amazing.
Lips: Chapstick is always on my lips no matter what. I have one in every pocket of my purse, all around my house, and at my desk. But typically I always grab a NYX Butter Gloss. They are hands down the best lip glosses and never leave my lips sticky. Plus they can be found at Target and Ulta and cost around $5.00!
That’s it! I hope this didn’t bore you to death and hopefully you found this post fun/informative. What are your favorite products or anything new I should try?
